|I did the handle and file job on this Jungle bowie and I really love the combination.|
|Here is a great shot of the knife overall, turquoise inlaid|
wood and file pattern with mosaic pins!
|A custom designed grind, the client had a very|
particular fighting style with which to use
this tactical, self defense knife.
|The sheath is designed for inside the|
waistband carry anywhere around the
beltline. All the corners were highly
rounded and smooth for a surprisingly

|I ran the river a lot with this great old dog in my youth.|
|I make quite a few of these Cocobolo capers for Andy at skinnersights.|
|Fiddle back maple is often overlooked, but I think really classy.|
|The natural shimmer is stunning in the sunshine.|
|Some real dark Cocobolo from Brazil I believe.|
|I love how much this wood can vary in color and figure.|
|Another great piece of Cocobolo, this is some Texas red color phase.|
|Speaking of Cocobolo, this is some of the |
most spectacular I have seen, like a martian sandstorm
on fiddle back maple! (by now you may see that I'm a woods nerd.)
|This Mexican Bocote consistently has a lot going on|
in that grain, looks good on the caper.
|I even left the edge of the bark in the front of this handle,|
just frozen solid in hard resin. I was pleasantly surprised
that it worked so well.
|This one became my own because I liked it too much|
it's been on a lot of adventures with me, and I expect
many more to come.
|We also designed this unique duo sheath for the pair.|
|This redwood sat for so long that it turned a deep cherry|
Red, almost black, very unique. I inlayed two small
cracks with turquoise and it just jumps out wonderfully.

tree and it has a look like long grain wild rice in
refried beans. It stabilizes very hard and makes a
|One of the first jungle bowies I did, this was a|
wedding gift for my cousin, the handle is pearl maple
under Claro, gunstock walnut.
|Another jungle bowie of the same handle |
combination with a different file pattern in the spine.
|This pattern was all done by hand file, like all my file|
patterns. This is when I learned how to make a pattern
"flow". I mirror polished the spine, and the knife was
donated to auction for the Youth for Christ charity auction.
|One of the first knives I made, this has a handle from|
the legbone of my first elk. It is seen atop pike fillets from
a sizable fish. This was to demonstrate the capabilities of
a small knife as I used only the Tn'B knife to process the fish
|This is probably one of only a few pattern folders I will|
ever make. Normally a maker would machine all of the
mechanism and blade himself but this set up was too
good looking, so I did the handle work on it with Mexican
|The blade is a stainless san mai damascus.|
|This little folder was a wild bit of work. The bolsters|
Are made from a mule deer antler, which has a beautiful
Ivory appearance, but is very difficult to properly shape.
|I had a little fun with the spacer, throwing in a|
file pattern and heat bluing the file strokes.
|The handle is some pretty neat Cocobolo burl, I think|
it nicely compliments the antler.
|I obviously combined the acrylic with black linen micarta,|
for both added durability and visual appeal.
|Feels good in the hand too.|

I made this for my personal caper.
|The finisher and it's sheath system. The slots are|
molded to accommodate most any belt, and the
rivet holes are just the right size to thread
parachute cord through.

I was not the one to do said testing.
